As you are aware, in anticipation of the lifting of current Covid restrictions, CCC is preparing for the season ahead. This year (2021) we have received a significant increase in the number of teams entered in our competitions across both codes at Adult and Minor levels with a significant number of clubs entering more teams than any previous year.
With the increase in teams, combined with withdrawals due to Covid fears, age, etc. comes an additional requirement for new referees. We are already operating with insufficient referees and this increase in teams will put even more pressure on CCC being able to appoint referees for all games.
Without an increase in referee numbers CCC will be unable to guarantee referees for all games in the coming season.
CCC plan to run a Foundation (Beginners) Course as soon as Public Health advice allows.
